Medical leave is still active duty and protections would apply. Being medically retired would be a different issue. But oh, the reputation risk. I would proceed cautiously when you repo from a disable veteran who was discharged because they were injured serving their country. Lots of media attention getting bites there. Be sure of what is done.
